Strange Beauty: Masters Of The German RenaissanceUsing paintings in its own collection by well-known German Renaissance artists like Hans Holbein the Younger, Albrecht Durer and Lucas Cranach the Elder, the National Gallery provides insights into the changing ways art of this era of art has been perceived. All the artists were famous in their own time, valued for their expression and inventiveness. But by the 19th and early 20th centuries, attitudes towards them were mixed, and often unfavourable compared to works of the Italian Renaissance.

 

About National Gallery

The National Gallery dominates London's Trafalgar Square with its neo-classical columns and portico designed by William Wilkins adjoining the square on its east side where it has been pedestrianised. Some of the finest examples of European art, ranging from 1260 to 1900, are included among the 2,300 paintings filling its halls and rooms. More about National Gallery
